Question about 1999 Daewoo Lanos

3 Answers

My timing belt in my 98 Daewoo Lanos snapped recently and the mechanic i took it to told me there was no need to check to see if there was any damage inside the engine because daewoo motors always drop their valves into the pistons when this happens. I have a funny feeling he was just pulling my leg, am i right? Where can i look this up?

Yes they bend valves
head needs to come off and valves will need replacing
this can be repaired
timming belts on these should be replaced every 60,000km

Well, they dont "drop" their valves into the cylinders, what happens is that the timing of the valves is lost after the belt breaks and they are left open on the compression chamber, when the piston goes up its head bends the valves.
hope this helps
take care

How do i change a timing belt on a 2000 daewoo lanos 1.4 e tec


If this is an "interference" engine and the belt broke while running you may have major engine damage. If non-interference, buy shop manual to give all details and torque values for this very important procedure.

hi, just letting you know my timing belt just went on my daewoo lanos. unfortunately it seems in a daewoo lanos that when the timing belt goes, it can do damage to one of the valves. mine is in at the mechanics and i am still hoping that it hasnt done any damage. i was also told that if you have replaced the timing belt and the car still wont start it has definitely done damage to a valve. sorry to give you the bad news!!

My lanos snapped its timing belt and i have replaced it but it is still running a little ruff its like its putting and verry sluggish


it sounds like the timing is off
when you replace a timing belt after it has snapped you risk internal engine damage-i would start by checking the timing-the belt may be on wrong-if that is not the problem you may be looking at a new engine

Locating camshaft positioning sensor on 2000 Daewoo Laganza


hi,
it is under the upper timing belt cover between the camshaft gears. According to the manual touching anything related to timing belt requires removing million parts including right front wheel. I suspect this might be an overkill just to remove upper timing belt cover.

So my advice would be to get it done by some mechanic as u will not be able to do it and may damage other parts also.

Thanks!
Sandy
